with emerson's and which now the obama administration is trying to take a step further. the clinton administration privatized this in the processing, animals are slaughtered and another step where they are cut up and processed so in the reprocessing there has been the privatized system that we have done a lot of work showing how dangerous it is. the obama administration wants to increase this program especially for poultry. it would mean more than 200 birds a minute are being slaughtered in a plant. that is not a misstatement. 200 birds a minute. there is no way there can be any inspection of these carcasses and these are immigrant workers, extremely dangerous work. imagine both hands get sliced. all sorts of horrible injuries and because of all the contamination from salmonella you can never eat another piece of chicken. they get the chicken into chemicals, things like corn and sodium phosphate. that really over originated with the corn -- the clinton administration. a lengthy answer. i don't know how much time we have. >> what is the mandate of the usda? where did go wrong and wha
. [inaudible] [inaudible] >> the question as to the criticism of the obama administration on its actions in a variety of al qaeda firm somalia, yemen was persuasive. but what's the right answer? >> well, i don't have a right answer and there isn't a right answer for any of these various places, but i think we need to get jan in review of troops on the ground cumin no troops on the ground in the situation here. i do think it is in our interest to find a way to work with local partners in order to combat local groups and allow them to cover their territories with their own forces. unfortunately, the way to do that involves putting boots on the ground. we have a long tradition. it was started by a democratic president who is enthusiastic about this kind of thing as john f. kennedy and this is one of the things the special forces were created to do. it is a train and advise mission and its enabled mission. if we had been doing that in yemen, we would in a somewhat better place. the questions are what do you do where you don't have partners where they can succeed in what he thought the escala
of the obama administration. big fan of a variety, oppose many elements of obamacare, and so he had to be finished. the way to do that was to say that he was somehow responsible for this murder, this horrible racial murder that happened in florida, and by doing that they went to collar a change in media matters in these groups that we mentioned before and and then leverage a boycott against alec. so heavily boycotted that they had to pull off the stand your ground law completely. think about it for half a second. one of the most heavily gun regular this is in the country. they had not written any of the legislation, a privately funded institution. did you see anybody being grilled about that? i missed it, but there are grilling the head of the nra and saying, you need to change your position. he is ahead of an interest group. it's his job not to change his position. the left expect that he is going to, and they demonize a mentally does because the nra must be finished. this is a tactical maneuver. reseeding class warfare, the fiscal cliff. it turns out we don't want the best for ame
need to have a vague understanding of why the federal reserve did what it did and the obama administration did raise the deficit, bigger deficits are bad but there was a rationale for a stimulus package. but the biggest message of the book to me as the author is a paradox of the private markets ran amok but pretty effectively to put things back on track but at the end of the day you witnessed a sharp backlash you call it a big government americans are against it. but there was a reason for the government intervention the likes we have not seen since the 1930's and it would have been a preview. nonetheless you did have a backlash against the government in general, president obama, it would have been against him him, against a democratic party more generally, the federal reserve, keynesian economics which i am perfect -- prepared to defend. but what both ended the of backlash period but my favorite cartoon from the crisis appears in "the new yorker" march 2009 and it shows a page set in in medieval castle courtyard and the king said is on the chopping block. wait stop governme
last month and it's not a widely recorded story the obama administration asked the decided once again to change the product and change the name. so they decided in mid-january that they didn't want to call it health exchanges but they would now have what we call health marketplaces, marketplaces without our kit perhaps. the official explanation for this was that it was because the word exchange could not he translated into the spanish language and for the billions -- millions under the exchange they want to know what it meant, and health exchange or a health marketplace. i want to be helpful in this regard so we can at least try to provide sufficient terms for the beginning of the obamacare dictionary. it was mixture and exchange and of course now it's called an insurance marketplace. there are some other terms in law. a new suggestion translated into the spanish and i won't include my bad accent but that's a new term for it under the affordable care act, donation. another term in the law, mandate. that has been translated new and improved for hispanic and the fisheries, suggestion. w
and human services in the obama administration has stood desert is not comply with the dictates of the affordable care act. the listed in that quandary is something on the ground in short that governor herbert will be talking about the utah exchange, but also in the larger context of what should represent innovative and affect his policy reform and also about utah's approach to medicaid reform and the difficult process to get the federal government to provide flexibility to the states and city of utah's role in promoting market-based health care. something were caught last month in a not widely reported story, the obama administration decide if you can't the product, change the name, so they decided they don't want to be called health exchanges, but would not be called health marketplaces. perhaps they be called health marketplace is. the official explanation for this would save us because the word exchange could not be translated into his vanished language and for the month of hispanic beneficiaries under the exchange, they just wouldn't know what it meant to be a health exchan
, and the obama administration's waiver process. all these events are tonight beginning at 8 p.m. eastern on the c-span networks. >> having observed a steady improvement and the opportunities and well being of our citizens, i can report to you, the state of this old but useful union is good. >> once again, in keeping with time-honored tradition i've come to report to you on the state of the union. and i'm pleased to report that america is much improved, and there's good reason to believe that improvement will continue for the data,. >> my duty tonight is to report on the state of the union, not the state of our government, but of our american community. and to set forth our responsibilities in the words of our founders, perform -- to form a more perfect union. the state of the union is strong. >> as we gather tonight, our nation is at war. our economy is in recession, and the civilized world faces unprecedented dangers. yet, t yet the state of our union has never been stronger. >> it's because of our people jot our future is hopeful, our journeyur goes forward and the state of our union as well. r
of the economy. one of the questions people often ask about the first year the obama administration why did you take on health care at the same time we were having the other issues. i think precisely the reason was health care is not just a huge moral, social, you know, all -- technological issue. it's an economic issue. it was one of those we thought by helping to deal with that is something that can be helpful for the economy going forward. you asked how can it, you know, -- what is a positive on health care? you asked how is the economy doing. what is the sector in the economy that is growing and adding jobs through the whole recession? it's the health care sector of the economy. i think it's, you know, and that i think partly because of the i dynamic sector coming up with incredible innovations. the amount of, you know, exciting discoveries that are looming on the horizon, i think are perhaps bigger in health care than in, you know, the many part of the economy. so that's the positive. the hard side is it's a complicated side. precisely the reason we don't leave health care to the private s
and what policy the obama administration and congress to propose to help stimulate the economy. this is just getting under way. >> a prime example of our ability to involve experts and debates on topics that are critical to the business community. i'm going to start us off today by queuing a video from christopher giancarlo of the gfi group, our sponsor, for this series. but for some want to make a brief announcement. this series, this economic series that we pose every quarter, has been accredited by the national association of state boards of accountancy to provide continuing professional education, credits for accounting professional. so we are quite excited of that and hopefully you will as well. this accreditation highlights the value of this and other programs that would hold her at the chamber. for more information on that please visit our website, or speak to some of folks outside in the registration desk. after the video i'm going to ask marty to come up directly and begin the program the first award from our sponsor, the gfi group. >> good morning. gfi group is deligh
of health and human services and the obama administration as to what does or does not comply with the dictates of the affordable care act. the only state in a quandary, utah a little far advance, something on the ground and in a few. in shortly governor herbert will be talking not only about the utah exchange but also places in the larger context of what should represent the innovative and effective state-led health policy reform. he will also talk a little bit about utah's approach to medicaid reform and the difficult process trying to get the federal government to buy more flexibility the states. the state utah's overall leadership in promoting market-based patient-centered health care. some of you may recall last month and not widely reported sure, the obama administration actually decided once again to if you can change the product you can change the name. so they decided in the mr. jindal there were no longer be called health exchanges but they would now forth with be called health marketplace. marketplaces -- the official explanation for the was there was because the wo
obama administration as it arrived in 2009. our effort to cowhat think tanks do. provide ground for it an complexity and granularity about this phenomena. recognizing that the sort of clicheed image of one eyed -- and his band of the devoted and attractable fan net tack was inadequate and falsifying of the problem. so the purpose was not prosecute a particular view of the taliban but just to start to document some sections of the diversity. and some aspect of the characteristic that were otherwise not part of american debate and discourse. i'm really proud of this book. and of peter particularly whose leadership of the national security studies program at new america will be the last five years he's been one of my joys in my office to support him to watch and katherine as well. who worked very, very hard. the last thing i want to say that the book and the ideas and the research in it is part of a much broader body of work of south asia we have been engaged here in the last five years. the channel i hope you are sub describers and carried out in collaboration with foreign policy
to tweet us, it's c-span wj. if you want to e-mail us, journal@c-span.org. what's the obama administration's approach to border security? >> guest: it's very interesting because now border security's becoming very complex. there's a strong border security component to the immigration reform bill that's being discuss ed and to the proposal that was put together by the so-called gang of eight senators who sat down in a bipartisan way and came up with a new proposal. their border security component is somewhat specific, and their whole immigration reform package hinges on securing that border. the obama administration proposal has more to do with interior enforcement, with changing laws of how we enforce verification of employment, the fact that people are here in the united states legally, all that kind of thing. and it's less specific on the border element of that. now, to me the whole hinge centers around what is a secure border. i mean, what is border security? and, in fact, there's no definition. it's subject to different interpretations, and what they're doing in the senate proposal whi
and assets due to fraud in the housing sector and lower wages and employment. under the obama administration, why is it that african-americans are doing worse under his administration more than the, like i say, last, previous four administrations? thank you. >> guest: well, the unemployment among blacks is now 16-plus percent. and so, um, whites are doing marginally better. blacks are doing significantly worse. the question is how much of that do we ascribe to the president? of course, there are other market forces and factors, i suppose, but i think that's a good question to put to the president. i should say at the same time that nobody wants more than i do to see president obama succeed, succeed. it is very important to the black community. that he have a successful president, presidency. and i think to some extent that's why blacks have not been disposed to be harshly critical of him because of things we might think he should have done but has not done. i think the political space he operates in is very small on these kinds of issues, um, and i don't know if he is willing to push out tha
's certainly a frustration and i think it's a problem that the obama administration had faith and credibility. the caller did talk about "the wall street journal" in its coverage of the crisis. i think every journalist has to look back on how we performed going into this financial crisis and after the financial crisis in certainly there's lots of areas where we should have had more skepticism and work harder to impose more scrutiny on the institutions we been talking about today. i've actually gone back and looked at the journal. i think we did a fairly good job. i wrote a story in 2005 saying there is a global housing boom, which could have been a global recession. we did try to write about a lot of these complicated financial instrument leading up to the financial crisis. so i want to say i think we did a pretty good job, but at the same time, we missed funny and could have and should have done more to shine more light on what was happening. >> host: it's not the world of economy, but is there some thing to be seen about what is currently going on with republicans, democrats on the topic of

it a lot. and also during my time, obviously in the obama administration, i greatly benefited from many of the georgetown graduates. i had the honor to have someone as my chief of staff, jeremy bash, who graduated from georgetown, served as my chief of staff at the cia and followed me to the pentagon as my chief of staff. and also someone who is head of public affairs at the pentagon, george little, who is also someone who both graduated and later taught here at georgetown. talented, young individuals who have been at my side every day for the last four years at both the cia and the pentagon. and i'm deeply grateful for fore work on behalf of me and on behalf of the nation. and i'm deeply grateful to georgetown for training such extraordinary public servants. and speaking of extraordinary public servants, i think many in this audience know that there's a georgetown professor that the president has nominated to serve as the next secretary of defense, chuck hagel. i am confident and i've expressed that confidence publicly that the men and women of the department of defense will have the k

of that, the administration -- through that, the administration proposed, president obama proposed a measure which was designed to force the congress to deal -- to step up to the plate and deal with the real problem. the real problem is a continued deficit spending at a level which we cannot begin to contemplate. which has to be addressed because it's accumulated year after year after year. we are now at the point where the clock is ticking at $16.5 trillion of debt that we have gotten into, up nearly $5 trillion in just the last four years. and the math clearly proves and history clearly shows that this is unsustainable, and this is the great challenge before this congress, to do what is necessary to get us on the right path to fiscal health before it all comes down. we had a warning shot fired across our bow in 2009 as to the disattorney generals in our economy and the consequences were grave -- distortions in our economy and the consequences were grave. we had warning shots fired almost every day across the atlantic as to what the european union and the european nations are tryi
obama concerning the status of the administration's review of trans-canada's new application for a presidential permit for the proposed keystone x.l. pipeline project. we have been asked to respond on behalf of the president. the letter goes through, yeah, we recognize it's an important project. we're looking at it. we're doing some more draft supplemental reviews and we hope that this information is helpful to you. please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of further assistance. so that's the extent of the response. so it's now been more than four and a half years since the permit applications were submitted to the state department for
administrations. they have a tremendous institutional at vantage in this kind of bias. i think what republicans have to do is avoid these sites come at the straps the democrats and president obama are laying, provide an alternative to passing legislation, just to show them this is how we recover if we have the powers of the presidency and the senate and to be careful and frankly the rougher edges republicans sometimes have. >> host: some republicans aren't happy sr is moving ahead. >> guest: i think if they had gone ahead, it would have been cataclysmic for the republican party. i say that because it is the worst possible ground for republicans to make their argument. elections have consequences. president obama won. as much as i want, it's absolutely crucial to the future of the country. i think some house republicans not sympathetic to their concerns, i think that dcl sums is misplaced and what would've happened as he would've had this high-stakes confrontation and in the end he would've had republican would've been overwhelmingly again, so you could then at the beginning, thumping your chest
